Planning a Trip
To get to Paarl from Franschhoek (some 30km/19 miles northwest), retrace your footsteps down Huguenot Road and take the R303 to Paarl (off the main road, after the turnoff to La Motte). Once in town, look for the first traffic circle and turn left onto Market; keep going until Market meets Main Street.
The Paarl Information Bureau (tel. 021/863-4937; www.paarlonline.com; Mon-Fri 8am-5pm, Sat 9am-2pm, Sun 10am-2pm) is at 86 Main St.
